Purchasing Authorization and Control


The superintendent is authorized to direct expenditures and purchases within the limits of the detailed annual budget for the school year. Board approval for purchase of capital outlay items is required when the aggregate total of a requisition exceeds $25,000 except that the superintendent will have the authority to make capital outlay purchases without advance approval when it is necessary to protect the interests of the district or the health and safety of the staff or students.

The superintendent will establish requisition and purchase order procedures as a means of monitoring the expenditure of funds. Staff who obligate the district without proper prior authorization may be held personally responsible for payment of such obligations.
